My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the MorningLite cabin. Rustic yet very clean and comfortable with all windows. It is very private and has all of the provisions you would ever need. It is so quiet you could hear a pin drop...surrounded by nature and the sounds of the creek below from the deck, I have never been so relaxed in my entire life.
Doug is such a nice guy and very helpful, but after check in your privacy is of the utmost concern here. The bed is the most comfortable bed we have ever stayed in through our many years of travel up and down the coast. The tub outside has plenty of hot water since both cabins are on separate water sources. Our favorite spot was on the futon, which was perfectly situated in front of the fireplace, where we sat, drank wine, read and talked.
A must see is the waterfall, which is spectacular while hiking there and has a very spiritual feeling when there. Only people who live on Palo Colorado road know about this place and Doug has an excellent map, along with signs and yellow flags helping you find the way. He now has a beautiful plaque nailed to a tree next to the waterfall in honor of his Dad which signifies his forever love of nature and life.
While hard to leave the cabin we ventured out to visit the Ripplewood Resort restaurant one morning for breakfast and the food and service was excellent! The next day we visited the Redwood Grill at the Fernwood Resort for the 49er game as my husband is a fanatic and couldn't miss that losing game, unfortunately, but we found the place to be a very friendly and fun place with great drinks. If you like smoked meats the food is for you. They prepare all of their meats on site.
The cabins are pet friendly and it is so nice to be able to bring your entire family, but make sure your pet is well behaved, looked after, and responds well to voice commands, as the cabins are on a hill with a few areas that drop to the forrest, so if they aren't use to being off leash bring one. Doug and Donna's new addition is well trained and cute and friendly as ever!
Of all of the accommodations in the Big Sur area, Rosehaven Cabins is by far the most remote and price friendly place to go. Please give them a try as you won't be disappointed.
Thanks Doug, Donna, and Sammy for making this trip our most memorable!
Cindy and Wayne Bollinger
